Nominal interest rate (i) ↑ as both P ↑ and r↑. Increasing GDP causes I to go up, but increasing r causes I to go down, hence we don’t know unambiguously the direction of change for I. In the LR: LAS is vertical and will not change, so GDP will remain the same (→). Price level (P) should ↑ as AD shifts right. GDP→, G↑, so I must ↓ (crowding out effect). Since I depends only on GDP and r, the fact that GDP→ and I↓
